Did you know that 2008 is a Leap Year? I'm sure you did. I'm sure you are much more aware of these things than I am…on whom it only just dawned that, hey, this Friday is the 29th of February!!
"How fun is this? To mark Leap Day 2008, the NGS in DC will host a FREE event for kids of all ages:
Celebrate Leap Day at the National Geographic Museum exhibit "Frogs! A Chorus of Colors" this Friday, February 29. The exhibition features more than 150 live frogs from 15 species, each in custom environments that match their natural habitats.
Show-and-tell presentations at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. with the exhibit's frog handler will allow Leap Day visitors the chance to get up close and personal with the frogs. In between presentations, the museum will screen National Geographic Explorer's "The Last Frog," which delves into the worldwide mystery of why the frog population is declining. Visitors can also conduct a virtual frog dissection using one of the exhibit's many interactives, or win a prize in a special leaping contest."
